    Hi there! I want to prevent certain programs to run before a certain time of day, with task scheduler.

    I'll give an example:

    Steam and Battle.net can only be started AFTER 14.00 hours, and can only be restarted until 00.00 hours, and after this time-slot, they are once more blocked, not to be unblocked until 14.00 hours, the following day.

    How do I go about this?

    If you're using Windows 10, take a look at this guide on the parental controls feature.

    Yep, was just assuming that you were using Windows 10.

    So, you'd need to use your favourite internet search engine for "how to use windows 8.1 parental controls"

    For starters, there is:

    Ah! Excellent! Thank you very much. = ) Is there any way to do this without setting up a child-account tho'? I'm actually doing this for myself, so there wouldn't be a need for a separate account - I'm trying to take control of my gaming-habits, you see.
